 I’ve spent the bulk of my three years at BuzzFeed News as an editor at BuzzFeed Reader. I edited 2017 National Magazine Award finalist Bim Adewunmi and other staff writers on our team and also worked with freelancers on personal essays, cultural criticism, profiles, and features. Here are some pieces I edited that I’m especially proud of:
